Q: When can I apply for a credit transfer?
A: If you switch between two degree programmes you have the opportunity to transfer your prior grades to the new programme, as long as there are equivalent modules in the new programme. You must apply for this in your first semester. The examination office has more information on the process.
Q: What can I transfer?
A: You have the opportunity to apply for a transfer of all credits which are available in an equivlanet form in your new degree programme. You can check for this yourself by comparing the module descriptions of both programmes. With that as basis, and with recommendations from the course advisors you can prepare your application.
